Angel of Hope memorial bricks
In 2001, the Angel of Hope statue was dedicated at the Maple Grove Arboretum. The statue is one of hundreds of identical statues in cities throughout the world and offers a place of solace for those who have lost a child of any age. Memorial bricks may be purchased for $125 and are installed and dedicated in the spring and fall each year.
Benches are currently available for sponsorship on the trail circling North Arbor Lake and at scattered sites in Maple Grove parks.
Benches are made of black cast iron and include a customizable brass plaque. Cost: $3,000.
Scattered site benches
Benches may be located in any of Maple Grove's parks. City staff will work with you to determine the final placement. These benches are made of powder-coated metal and include a customizable plaque.

More than 230 trees have been sponsored at the arboretum since its creation in 1986. The arboretum is fully sponsored, and no additional trees are available at this time.
